A thought about mothers

Dr. G. Campbell Morgan had four sons and they were all preachers. Someone once came into the drawing room when all the family was there. They thought they would see what Howard, one of the sons, was made of so they asked him this question: "Howard, who is the greatest preacher in your family?" Howard had a great admiration for his father and he looked straight across at him and then without a moments hesitation he answered, "Mother."

I love this! Thanks, Tony! Please tell Shari I said Happy Mother's Day! I hope it was nice for her and for all of you. She is blessed with a houseful of wonderful men!

Watched a movie on LMN network that was supposed to be dedicated to good mothers? Diane Keeton played her typical immoral, rough speaking, meddling busy body. Trying to justify her failed marriage, immoral past, gossiping behavior, she made the egregious comment, “God couldn’t be everywhere so that’s why He created mothers!” Hard to take that awful theological distortion of God’s Omnipotent truth? But as sad as it is, this is indeed, the world's view of motherhood.
